You should get all of your kit except for your dress uniform (a.k.a. DEU), as long as the QM has everything in stock.

As long as the boots fit properly and can be polished to meet the staff's expectations, take them along.  But also take your new ones and start wearing them on alternate days to break them in.  Just in case the staff require it, be prepared to show the extra pair polished for inspection as well as the ones you were issued.
